Coat of Arms

From <>:
"The coat of arms of the Province of Ancona - The Province of Ancona has inherited its symbol from the past; the image portrays a bent arm - AnkÚn, in Greek, which refers to the morphology of the coastline and, precisely, to the point where the Doric city is situated. This image was taken from a bronze coin of IV century, put into circulation by the Syracusans, founders of Ancona."
